The Great Rift: Africa's Wild Heart (released in the US as The Great Rift: Africa's Greatest Story) is a British nature documentary series, which began airing on BBC Two on 24 January 2010. A BBC/Animal Planet co-production, the three-part series focuses on the landscape and wildlife of the Great Rift Valley in East Africa. At the end of each fifty-minute episode, a ten-minute featurette, Inside The Great Rift, takes a behind-the-scenes look at the challenges of filming the series.

Still, they contend that South Africa, the region’s economic powerhouse, should have put it into practice long ago, but lacked the political will. issued its recommendation in 2006.

Thereafter, the more aid, the more HIV infections grew. For anyone interested in HIV/AIDS in Africa, this is a must-read. Although formally trained as a molecular biologist, Helen Epstein is an excellent writer and paints an accurate picture of the history of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa, with a specific focus on Uganda, East Africa, and Southern Africa. A very moving book that helps us realize the ways in which we will end this horrible disease have little to do with big pharma and a western-centered solution.

Where is Africa's Great Rift Valley? This formation was made by tectonic plates and has created seas, valleys, and lakes from Jordan to Mozambique. The Great Rift Valley is a series of connected rift valleys.

They are now - one way or another - virtually all giving aid to or investing in Africa, whereas Africa, with its vast savannahs and its lush pastures, is giving almost nothing to anyone, apart from AIDS. Meanwhile, Africa's peoples are outstripping their resources, and causing catastrophic ecological degradation. By 2050, the population of Ethiopia will be 177 million: The equivalent of France, Germany and Benelux today, but located on the parched and increasingly protein-free wastelands of the Great Rift Valley.

Excellent book giving insight to the life, traditions and challenges of the beautiful people of the warm heart of Africa, Malawi.
I was lucky to have visited the warm heart of Africa-Malawi, and had a splendid time there. The forest, mountains and wildlife were beautiful and the people were very freindly. Yet being a shortterm visitor, I had very limited view into the life of the people there.

Being one of the least developed countries in the world, it is plagued by poverty and diseases. And it was through this book, I gradually came to understand its society and the causes behind.

The authors had lived in Malawi for over 20 years. They depict their life in the hospital and university, and also the changes in the surrounding community with vivid images that will surely draw readers into the warm heart of Africa.

Highly recommand this book.
